Ministerial Credentials:

"So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching: Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfullness." Romans 12:5-8 KJV
The United Assemblies of Christ International is an international fellowship of churches, ministries and ministers that adhere to, practice and profess the Christian faith as taught by the Apostles. We are one of the fastest growing fellowships, with members, churches and ministers throughout the Continental United States and abroad. Our goal, mission and ministry is to bring the people of God to the knowledge and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We actively seek those who are willing to answer the divine calling in Christ and become witnesses to the world of the true doctrines as Christ taught, and effectual working of the Holy Ghost with signs and wonders.

United Assemblies of Christ International offers those men and women who qualify the opportunity to gain their Ministerial Credentials, education and training on several levels. We acknowledge all five levels of the Five-Fold Ministry (Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers). Additionally, we recognize and endorse the calling and ministration of Exhorters, Missionaries, Ministers, Elders, Overseers and Bishops.
